Music has had such a profound influence in my life. I love how I can hear a song and be transported to another time, be flooded with memories, almost be able to make out the smells of the memories. For someone with a memory as bad as mine, music that can trigger those things are pure gold. I'd love to sit down one day and make out a "Soundtrack of My Life". What fun that would be but, oh what an undertaking.

And so, because I like to reminisce, talk about music and challenge others....

The Rockstar Award.

Why you get it:
For being wicked cool.

What you do:
Think of 15 albums that had such a profound effect on you they changed your life or the way you looked at it. They sucked you in and took you over for days, weeks, months, years. These are the albums that you can use to identify time, places, people, emotions. These are the albums that, no matter what they were thought of musically, shaped your world.

Then, pass it on to 10 other Rockstar bloggers!
